Illinois kids only get one chance at an education and we must do everything we can to ensure that they get access to the quality schools they need and deserve. The Campaign is urging lawmakers to Invest in Kids and take meaningful steps toward providing all children with the best education possible by providing funds to the following programs:

  1. A tax credit to reimburse teachers for their out-of-pocket classroom expenses.
  2. Provide funding to ensure critical music, arts, and sports programs continue as in tough budgetary times, these programs are the first to be cut.
  3. Increase donations across the state to nonprofit scholarship organizations to provide scholarships to students to attend K through 12th grade, public and private schools.
  4. Funding to help schools ensure that students are safe and can learn in well-maintained buildings.

The Illinois Kids Campaign is a grassroots coalition made up of over 350 schools and organizations from every corner of the state. Parents, guardians, teachers, communities, businesses, labor organizations, and many others support this effort to give kids the best education possible.
